Will be able to do More research on it when I go get it with my trailer next week... it's sitting at a lawnmower junkyard, guy said that he thinks that it ran when he got it but he isn't sure.

If my research was correct, that's probably going to either be an early '70s LGT 100 or an early '70s LGT 120, as the larger ones had pretty much only hydrostatic options.  That is a nice tractor though, being built by Jacobsen with a Kohler cast iron block engine and a tube frame.

Only way to make a ford reliable...put a chevy motor in it. Cool


all bullshit aside, I bought this truck 4 years ago for $400. '84 ranger with 2.3l 4 cyl and 5 speed. put a chevrolet 1 wire alternator on it and gave it to my brother. drove the wheels off of it until a couple months ago when the transmission took a dump. never changed the oil, plugs, plug wires, nothing. ran strong till the end. pulled it for a sbc and 5 speed swap. currently in process.

You had the perfect chance and truck to drop a 2.3 turbo out of the Thunderbird turbocoupe in it. Would have been perfect, and probably better handling. Stock forged internals, turn up the boost and let it eat. V8 power from a 4 cylinder, no joke.

But be different, do your own thing. At least it's not a 350 like everyone else.

Just as an example, though.

If people can call gas vehicles "gassers", then can we call diesel vehicles "dieselers"?
Last I checked a gasser is a type of drag car. Get it right.

2.3l turbo coupe motors along with all the wiring and whatnot to go with it are a pain to find and usually expensive in my area.

I really don't care about being different, or even going fast. this truck is just something fun to beat around in. and being a SBC it's going to be reliable and cheap to fix. I got the motor for free, the trans was 250$, already had the intake I'm going to use, so going SBC was also little to no cost for me.

I beg to differ. 
1993 F350 460
All original parts...mostly
   
   

1984 F150 custom shortbed
Unknown motor but it was a good one.
Dads first truck, but he didn't keep it because the idiots at the 4wd shop messed up his lift. Notice the skinny arms on the front in the beach picture.
